Your character falls into the “friend zone” - Is this primarily a man’s problem, or are women put in the friend zone as well? x
I never thought I’d like Daniel Radcliffe this much
I literally love Dan Rad.
smart, smart man.
While they were deciding the final name for his film “What If?” (the film he’s being interview about), the name “Friend Zone” was actually put out there, but Daniel was adamantly against it and told them absolutely not, because he can’t stand the concept of the friend zone and thinks it’s just whiny, and not at all what the movie is supposed to really be about. So much respect for this amazing young man <3
My favourite thing about this, is that he goes back to his father, and holds him accountable for his actions. He’s thought he was in the wrong for years. That it was his fault he lost his honour. To see him come to this understanding that he was a child and his father was the responsible party was amazing.
I can’t even think of any other animated kids shows where the abuser is called out on their abuse as openly and directly as he was in this show. And don’t even start me on the importance of them showing that a male child can be the victim of abuse by a male parent. That’s a demographic that so often gets brushed aside and they get told to “man up” or in this case “act like a Prince.” And Zuko gets to stand up and say “I AM a Prince. You’re the one who was wrong.”
